Spotted: The Last Days of Dogtown


The title made me tired because it made me think of Lars Van Trier’s Dogville, which was a movie I really wanted to like because it’s all artsy and stuff, but I just couldn’t manage to stay awake.  It might have been the jet lag, but more realistically, I think I’m just not that committed to minimalist film.  Anyway, the book.   

This book sounds like it has a greater chance of keeping me awake.  If you read the review, the words “witch” and “whore” appear, as well as a character/inhabitant of this strange little part of Massachusetts that is into cross-dressing in the 19th century.  Ahead of her/his time, we say! 

And apparently Anita Diamant is quite gifted with historical novels.  Worth the time?
